Perhaps when I reach retirement and have lost my love of men. Thanks for the compliment!

You are the modern day Pharisees that Jesus condemned. No question about it.
Sure seems that way. Jesus didn't die on the cross so republicans can win votes.

Partisan Catholic groups, misguided nuns, and even some prominent professors, have for months been accusing Paul Ryan of being a heretic. Their attacks have often been uncharitable and purposely deceptive. This is unjust, unfair, and a shameful misunderstanding of Catholic social teaching.

Bishop Morlino clarifies once again that the Church does not endorse candidates. However, he explains that the Church does propose to Catholics, and to the world, a set of principles grounded in human nature, accessible to all by our common human reason, that must inform and shape our consciences. Finally, he makes clear that the responsibility of faithfully applying Church teaching to candidates and to the world of politics is OUR job - the work of the laity --the work of groups like CatholicVote.org!

Bishop Morlino reaffirms the constant teaching of our Church that Catholics must be united on the issues of life, marriage and religious liberty. And when it comes to prudential matters, we must work together in charity, even when we disagree, to achieve solutions that serve the common good.
You understand that Bishop Morlino is proselytizing, right? Lording over Catholics either the threat of damnation or the promise of salvation based upon on how they vote as citizens of this country, right? That's absolutely immoral.

Or to force His beliefs on others.

Ryan is an embarrassment to Wisconsin. We have some great, intelligent people in Wisconsin so it is terrible that the only people on the news from Wisconsin are people like Ryan, Jeffrey Daumer, Scott Walker, Ed Gein, etc.

That was a quote. And yes, it was right of that source to point out that Ryan is Catholic. Ryan was speaking to evangelicals, many of whom find papists to be evil and the Pope akin to the devil.

You're wrong.

Wrong again.

I'm Catholic.
